strategists for barack obama and mitt romney say early voting could be' decisive factor in the election. obama became the first president to vote early. he urged his supporters to exercise their rights before election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see th
to a nuclear iran. >> yes. four years after obama was elected, four whole years have passed. (laughter) the president did nothing to stop the march of time (laughter) not only is iran four years closer to a nuclear bomb, if you think about it, everybody is. even me! (cheers and applause) admittedly, i'm still far away. the mentos and diet coke stage. but still. (laughter) and, folks, mitt laid out his prosecution of the president's weak leadership. >> four years ago the president began what i called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they look at that and saw weakness. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. >> yes it is! (laughter) you apologized. not only that, you bowed to leaders all over the world! that is not presidential! f.d.r. never bowed to foreign leaders. (laughter) he never even stood for them! (laughter) but obama -- (cheers and applause) -- obama, obama will bow to anyone! hell, after the debate he bowed to romney's grandson! (laughter) and, folks, great points by romney but it's not just what romney said
in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if. (laughter) folks, folks, here's how it stands. the electoral kitchen is closing in two weeks and they still can't decide if they want the black-and-white cookie or the decaf wheat thin. (laughter) they're elusive! but we know that they're out there! these campaigns have spent billions of dollars trying to capture them with lawn signs, t.v. ads, radio spots, internet banners, robocalls and, for some lucky ohio voters, an amorous david axelrod with a rose in his teeth. (laughter) but a few and the liesing facts about these mysterious creatures have emerged. >> undecided voter they say typically a single white female between 18 and 29 years old, she has a job with a low income, she did not graduate from college. according to this poll she skipped watching the debate. >> stephen: fascinating. the pe
. in order to save obama's election. this little break here, in the storm, is helping obama, the media is helping obama. >> bob: i think that is a little bit unfair. obama has done a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam becom
disarray or discontent within the obama election campaign where he comes down doesn't do anything, and then flies back. >> the president can be unpredictable. a lot of reason why they brought the president back was they didn't know how bad the weather would be in washington. >> it's the image of him campaigning on the day of the hurricane. >> he can't do that. >> cenk: no, no, you know, obama, he doesn't know what is going on. [ chuckling ] coincidentally on fox news. in 2013 the request for the fema budget is a little over $13.5 billion. you need that, obviously because we're getting more and more severe storms every year, including hurricane sandy that is hitting us now. better be prepared as we learned from hurricane katrina. not if you listen to the ryan-romney budget. we give them every benefit of the doubt on discretionary spending for the government. they don't specify, of course, because they're cowards. they don't say i'm going to cut this program this program this program. let's assume they do not cut fema any more than they would cut any other program. what would the fe
's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very excited. >> jennifer: wisconsin's early voting ends the friday before the election instead through the weekend, how does that affect your efforts to get out the vote? >> we know on saturday mornings w
, this is what president obama said. >> obama: i'm not worried about the impact of the election. i'm worried about the impact of families and on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> cenk: nice standard answer. nothing wrong with that. let's turn to the election and see where things stand. i want to give a sense of what to look out for on election day. i'm call it o-win. in order for president obama to win he needs four states other than the ones he has locked up already. that's o for ohio, and right now election of polls at "huffington post" is looking at, not just one poll but a collection. 48.4%-45.7% lead for president obama. the likelihood that president obama has an actual lead based on the polls is 97%. that doesn't mean that he has a 97% chance of winning ohio. it just means that he has 97% of leading today in ohio. now wisconsin 49.8%-46.0%. probability of the lead today is 98.5%. then you go to i had iowa. another somewhat comfortable lead for president obama. probability of his l

gets elected, that's the debate you'll have. if obama gets elected, it's how high do taxes go. if romney is legislated, how low can we keep taxes. the second part we need badly is how can we reform the tax system? how can we either go to a flat tax or at least flatten our taxes so that we end up with one or two rates. we end up with fewer deductions, fewer exemptions, put that money in a lower rate. i think governor romney is absolutely right, you don't list those now. he couldn't know what they are now. that's what you negotiate about, but the difference in direction will be dramatic. in one case, the direction will be how do we increase revenues to the government? the other case, the direction will be how do we at least keep revenues where nay are and see if we can't reduce them a little. where do we find reductions in the spending? that's a very, very exciting period of time to go through. that's what i went through when i worked for president reagan as associate attorney general. president reagan, as you know, even with a democratic house of representatives, was able to do

of the swing states. that's going to be the key is that election is one week from today. obama's people are on the ground and going to be going door to door and getting the vote out. >> one thing to think about here is the undecided has already broke before the storm. had this storm come a week earlier, it could have seen an impact. romney went over 50 and that tells us that the undecided had already broken. they are not likely to break back again. >> how is the president going change the numbers. a lot of polls have romney up a point. >> it does not matter. those are weighted on who is likely to vote. there's some questions on that. the polls that matter is ohio, florida and virginia and, you know, even wisconsin and iowa as well. those are the ones that if obama can hold the midwest and that's what he is trying to hold. if he can hold that there's no way romney can win. >> it looks like romney will take ohio, florida and virginia. >> that's a dream. >> if he does that and he takes colorado too and iowa, all of those things are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election.
just three hours before it was to start. earlier he san selled events in virginia and ohio. obama said he's not worried that the hurricane will affect the election next tuesday. former president bill clinton was in orlando, florida to rally support. clinton said obama is the best choice for president. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the he said he's deeply disappointed but will not be deterred. >> it will not discourage us. the people of syria deserve our support and our interest. >> russian forn says he supports a plan to sd inspectors back to sy

of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting absentee ballot in 2008 but is far through roughly the 27th, it has been a decline of seven points if president obama declines seven point he is in trouble one with 53, dropping seven gives him 47. >>neil: how do you think the storm affects this in anyway? karl: where it is difficult to cope. romney will be hurt by heavy snow in unseasonably heavy snow in far southwestern virginia, coal country, inhospitable to pre

this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned to win but it's never easy being a republican in new jersey. one of the strategies christie has had to appeal to nonrepublican voters in new jersey in the last year is speaking out and publicizing alliances with democrats which creates the image of the bipartisan guy who won't get bogged down in petty republican politics. for instance, he's had this alliance with cory booker, democratic mayor of newark. alliances with democrats in mayor from south jersey. now president obama. like i said for christie to win next year, he has to get a fair number of people voting for barack obama this year. >> let me raise this, though, joy. what struck me, as we deal with this presidential race, is that it was announced today that the president is coming to new jersey tomorrow to see some of the devastation and that governor christie was goi

the economy back on track. >> the election will take care of itself. that was president obama addressing reporters earlier today at the white house. this is one of the things you can't really predict in terms of the effect on a presidential campaign. this massive storm, a storm of more than regional, basically national significance. it's hit the pause button on a presidential campaign. it's hard to know how it's going to play out exactly. mostly because we don't know what the overall impact of the storm itself is going to be. the defacto suspension of the campaign itself today and the handling of this crisis by president obama and to a lesser extent mitt romney made themselves be things that affect the election. but the campaign ceasing today does end the candidates most direct efforts to nudge the polls any further in one direction or another. for the record, here's what the latest polling stands now as the campaign stops. in term os of the national tracking polls, rasmussen has romney ahead by two points. politico has president obama ahead by one point. abc news and "washington post" s
that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a callated strategy on his part. now, you uld y, "d it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgo

of them being colorado. here is another piece, election 2012. president obama was 46%. guest: we always knew that races like this would tighten up. they always do in october and november. and we have been working hard with daud. we have 60 obama offices across colorado to deliver a strong ground game. we are still sure that he will take colorado's electoral votes. host: tell us about your ground game. guest: like i said, we have 60 offices spread around all four corners, from small towns like during go and ridgway and fair play in the mountains, -- durango, ridgway, and fair play in the mountains to the metra offices. we have paid staffers and literally thousands of volunteers in every single neighborhood to try to bring people out of their homes to vote, to get their mail-in ballots turned back in. it is an incredibly strong operation. frankly, i've never seen anything like what we have here in colorado right now. host: when it comes to democratic voters, president obama one last time with the youth in the states. here is something from the l.a. times -- guest: i would say their enthus
campaigns. these campaigns are finally making their closing statements of this election. john oliver, let's start with you. what is obama campaign's closing speech and pitch to the american people? >> simply this, john. the obama camp feels the choice is simple. maybe obama hasn't been the president you wanted him to be. perhaps he didn't meet the high expectations he set himself. but the other guy, jon, is a total dick! (cheers and applause) i mean that. jon, he's a six-foot shaft with tiny ballses for feet. he may not fire you himself but you know that when he's looking at you he's unemploying you with his eyes. (cheers and applause) now, if you will excuse me, jon, i'm going to stare at aasif while he's talking, thereby dominating him visually. (laughter). >> jon: well, all right, seems like a relatively low-brow closing argument from the obama campaign. aasif, you've been with the romney campaign. what's their closing argument? >> well, what do you want it to be? (laughter) (cheers and applause) look, jon, um, mitt romney has been running for president for seven years. these are two s
